Little Ones

Review

I had a great experience with little ones especially Faye Whitehead! She helped me so much in my urgent need to find a new host family and she found me a wonderful one! I highly recommend her to future nannies/au pairs.

Outstanding

Can't recommend this agency enough to job seekers in this industry. My agent is not only kind and sweet, but also efficient and hard working without being pushy and anniying like other agencies I have experienced. They also provide a good range of courses and help you with dbs and so on promptly. I had offers and interviews with parents within days. Outstanding service. Good job Little Ones!

fraudulent and dangerous

it would be a serious catastrophic decision to employ this agency. their approach and candidates scream "dirty scheme".
if you seriously care about your little ones then keep clear of this dodgy establishment that will only make you worry and render your household to chaos. they promise and deliver decoy staff only to start you on a cycle of the worst quality and caliber of nannies and housekeepers under one company. its shocking how an agency can blatantly sell itself with a website and long list of lies and still be operating. I implore any new victims to never put their homes or kids in the hands of these vultures. The pressure to and almost stalking levels to sign terms and agreements and conditions with so many hidden small print are merely traps to basically forcibly extract funds from innocent families makes it obvious that the scheme is to bank the agency fees with no intention to deliver the suitable staff or care whatsoever what the consequences their actions will lead to. A CON AGENCY WITH NO SHAME

WARNING - DO NOT USE THIS AGENCY

WARNING TO PARENTS AND NANNIES - DO NOT USE THIS AGENCY: They are negligent, unethical and unscrupulous. We were matched with a nanny only for it to become clear the contract was never capable of being fulfilled, the agency knew that and we had been lied to to get us to hand over the fee (of thousands and thousands of pounds) which they are now refusing to return to us. The agency's only interest is inducing parents to pay them a large placement fee. Do NOT pay them any money, even if they tell you the Nanny has signed the contract. I am posting this review as we do not want other families to be left in the position we are left in of having no childcare (we let our current nanny, who had been primary carer for my daughter since she was 8 months old go, which was a difficult decision and based on the belief that we had a new live-in nanny starting) two working parents and the stress and upheaval of having to find emergency childcare, spend hours trying to get the agency to return money, all whilst trying to find a replacement nanny. Please please do not rely on this agency to provide you with reliable childcare and nannies should know that they will not try to match up with appropriate families. All they are interested in is getting a fee from families and then blaming the nanny when it turns out neither party was told the facts in the case.

Had a very bad experience with Little Ones!

I heard and read a lot of negative reviews about Little Ones but I chose to trust them, unfortunately what I've been reading was the truth ..

I'm writing this review after my bad experience with Little Ones. I've been contacted by Mr Solomon Yeboah to attend an interview at their agency for a nanny job. He was nice and polite, I filled the form and provided all required documents. He also suggested available positions with families requiring a nanny. Mr Solomon was assuring me that I will start working soon. I applied for my DBS check through Little Ones and took an appointment to have my paediatric first aid traning.

Everything seemed to be working well. As soon as I submitted my DBS payment, Mr Solomon no longer contacted me back. He closed his phone and stopped responding to my emails. I waited for 2 weeks and nothing was heard from them. I called the agency regarding the course and they assured me I will be contacted back. But no one ever called. My DBS check application was never processed nor updates were sent to me. I requested a cancellation as I already started seeking a different job. All my calls were filled with promises but no action has been taken.

They took the money and disappeared. Little Ones try to get money from scamming people, many parents and nannies complained a big loss of money because they try to rip your money off. I contacted the website which I applied for my DBS check on to cancel my application but even those just ignored my request.

I'm terribly disappointed with this experience and I will always warn people to stay away from this agency.

They won't help you, they just see you as a bag of money.

Unprofesional and rude

Not recommendable at ALL!
Went there last week as they asked me because I was lookig for a nanny job.
When I arrived the woman realised she forgot to ask me to bring with me some documents (and as she said that was the 3rd time that week).

I filled in the document on the Ipad they give you and when I was leaving this person made a comment about me not having the driving license.

I contacted through email this woman 3 days after I was there, just to let her know I've found a job but kindly asking if they could help me with something else.
I didn't get a reply and it's been already 4 days (I even texted her on her phone next day and no answer).
I wrote a complaint to the agency and they haven't even bother to answer.

Horrible experience.
Parents, nannies etc DO NOT go there.

The took money and no service was provided

They took almost 10 thousand pounds and never sent me the nanny. I spent money on airplanes tickets and when I cancel the contract for their fault they kept me money.
I am still after them to give me my money back.
Mr. Ben Galley called me 5 times a day until I made the payment. and now he doesn't answer the phone. Also mrs Aleggra. Now it is with an attorney. Whoever had the same problem, contact me and we sue them together.

Very disappointing service

Went with them despite being warned of poor service as one of the only agencies providing bi-lingual nannies. They found us a nanny initially but she proved unreliable and left us with no notice after 7 weeks. Per the contract they were meant to find a replacement but when there was no more money to make they were unhelpful and unintereste, failing to produce a single replacement nanny for interview. We tried to get a refund but got nowhere and the staff became increasingly rude. I almost wonder if it's a scam where they have a few nannies who they place who then leave so they can place them elsewhere and get more sign on fees. I would recommend avoiding.

Go to the police.

Go to the police, record every email you send them. I contact them more than 100 times. I sent emails to all the emails I found include the CEO and directors.
I also gave bad reviews in every website that talks about them.

I lost my sanity but at least I got most of my money back.
I made more than 30 phone call recorded everything saying that I was recording, and saying I wanted my money back.

Eventually they understood I was already living in hell and I would destroy them because I was going to london and to the police with all my proof and a lawyer.

They disgraced my summer. Made my life unbearable.

Im still thinking in putting an attorney to get the money back of the air tickets and the money for the interviews we pay at the beginning.

I will be in London and I will check o that soon.

These people lie, do the bare minimum and then wait. When you're so desperate to hire someone and drop all your principles and wish lists just for a pair of helping hands, they charge your a small fortune for someone totally average that you could have found on gumtree.

Short-term views, at a high fee

The agency presents itself as a high-end introducer for multi-lingual staff, carefully selecting the best candidates.
My experience is they do a decent job at selecting good candidates... for the agency, but not always for families. I have the impression that the business' objective is to make money identifying candidates who would occasionally return on the agency's books and generate money again for another family. Little Ones is not looking to fit long-term needs and this is where it is hugely disappointing to pay 18% of the nanny's annual salary in placement fees: I have been introduced to excellent candidates who were only available 6 months, others who were looking for a transitional job. Some nannies also described that they were pressed to accept the positions as they were "fantastic roles" (even though the commute is a bit long, the salary a bit low, the family fit not "fantastic", etc). All this compromises long-term views. It is unfair to base fees on a significant portion of the annual salary and to offer only 3-months' replacement guarantee (I suspect that long-term issues are becoming too visible after that period). If you are ready to pay high fees whenever you need, then go for it, otherwise, let's try another way.
In addition, some consultants do not do a decent job of managing the client relationship (invoice not sent but claimed, candidates not fully vetted) and for the price paid, I would have expected much better stewardship and follow up, not to be given random calls for payment when they are already made.

Nannies stay away from unprofessional agency

I'm writing to complain about a lady called Mila, who I spoke to today and before Christmas.
I've received phone call from her on 22nd of December after I've applied online for a nanny job. She has asked me to come to your office next day for an interview which I couldn't make it due to my work commitments so she has asked if I can do Skype interview around 3 o'clock next day.
As I wasn't sure what's happening at work I said I can't guarantee but I'll be more free after Christmas and New Year. She said that that's fine and that she will send me an email on which I can reply to her about the interview following day. I had some emergency situation at home and also extra hours of babysitting. I forgot to reply to her email and haven't heard from her any more.
Today I called your office again as I have more free time so that I can properly register with your agency.
First lady I spoke to was very polite and helpful and after short conversation she said she will transfer me to Mila.
As soon as Mila started talking to me I was not happy with the tone of her voice which sounded very unprofessional, annoyed and angry.
She was saying I didn't come to see her or call her or didn't reply to her. I've politely apologised and explained the situation. Although, I have calmly apologised about three times she would keep on talking about the fact that she had to wait for me and then she said something really long, so quickly and angrily but I couldn't even understand. I've asked her (politely again) if she can slow down with her speech as I didn't understand what she said in which she answered "Listen!" and then again she was talking about missed Skype appointment and that she had to wait for me.
I didn't think that she would be a right person to help me with the registration or anything else in fact so I just said thank you and I don't want your help anymore.
I found this behaviour very unprofessional and childish and I don't quite understand why would you have somebody with su

The worst agency we have ever encountered

Absolutely terrible service. The agency were useless, wouldn't send us the nanny references and I couldn't actually trust them with a child's safety again. The nanny completely disregarded our requests, was unsafe with our daughter, anything could have happened. She couldn't get our toddler to sleep - some nights she was up until midnight! She didn't feed her at all some days, she didn't even know how to make boiled eggs!! She left the kitchen a mess most days and didn't follow any of our (written) instructions.

I called and emailed to complain several times and never got a call back. We had to send the nanny home in the end without anyone even calling me back. Wouldn't recommend to anyone!Wouldn't trust to keep a child safe. We did email the email below and no apology or help offered, no refund for the exorbitant fees. Just the offer to find another, useless candidate!!

Not recommebdable

This agency charges extremely high fees and their candidates are very low quality. They kept pushing for us as the employer to offer more money beyond what we were comfortable with. After one employee who turned out to be very emotional and the great cook she claimed to be (could only make three dishes well), we had to take them up on the replacement guarantee. After some months the replacement started shouting at our child and acting extremely unprofessional. It appears this agency does not take on board the feedback regarding their candidates and they will try to resell the same poor quality people to other families. Beware!
